i gotta agree with style. towers that look like this one/this size (and are probably the same age) are getting torn down all over the place...Columbia, Raleigh, Miami, Odessa...looks like this one also has a horribly inefficient floor plan like the rest.

Replacing that building with a parking lot? Sad.
Why don't they just rave the entire downtown and pave it over, just for the hospital. While they are at it, build a massive Wal-Mart and Mcdonald's.

woohoo! Lots of wise decision-making goin' on...

Oh, that's probably coming. The hospital bought a nearby car dealership and leveled several of the buildings, except for the main showroom. They are currently parking lots. It's not like they didn't have two 25% empty garages already.

If you are ever out this way and need medical attention, do NOT go to Medical Center Hospital. Go to Odessa Regional Hospital or Alliance Hospital. I am getting NO MCH tattooed on my chest just in case I am in a car accident and found unconscious. :)

The hospital kicked out the local food vendors and went with Starbucks and Subway. They build office space for private doctors and charge less than market rent, hurting other commercial property owners. They bill certain expenses for these doctors back into the general hospital operating budget, so it is paid for by taxpayers.
